Welcome to Merry Holidays!
Way back in 1993 I reserved the domain name Merry Holidays.com. Back then, I think I paid more than $100 to register a name. Merry Holidays was the only name I could think of for a website to build around the Santa Updates we were providing for my kids that had become so popular.
I sold the domain name in '96 or '97 after I was able to get the name My Merry Christmas. I came upon Merry Holidays a few years ago and on a sentimental whim I purchased it again (only $8/year these days). Since that time Merry Holidays -- hidden still from the public -- has been a secret project of mine that we will be launching in the coming months. It will have some Christmas on it but, really, the intent of the new Merry Holidays is to focus on all holidays.
Hence these new topics -- kind of a preview of what is yet to come. Besides, I know we all celebrate other specials days besides Christmas. I thought it was time we make room to discuss them!
